    Hard to believe its a year since Lorne passed away (on the 7th Sept I think it was...). Wearing #135 today with my chrono seconds parked at 7 in memory of the man himself. He'd have been disgusted at...

    Carl made that buckle. I just sent over a JPG of the logo and he did a great job. I do have a Dangerous9 strap too - a thing of beauty. Makes the watch so much more dressy - but given I'm in a fleece...

    Lovely to hear from you John - I sent you a message on Instagram when the news broke, but messaging on Instagram is a bit useless it would seem, unless you are following each other.

    Went to edit my earlier post to correct a typo but it got deleted.

    We are lucky to have known Lorne. A true gentleman.

    Only last week, he emailed me with instructions on what to do regarding...

    You've reset your chrono hand to zero while the rest of us leave it at 7-8 minutes to avoid setting Lorne off :smug:

    Drop me a PM with your nearest town/city and I'll add you to the owners map:...

    😂 Oh dear... I've that to look forward to then! It came off easily enough but these things rarely go back as smoothly.

    Well.. what do we think of this then?....

    I've been using a "Watch Steward" on my SKX007 for ages and just realised today that the lug size is the same. Most comfortable strap EVER with its...

    My macro "studio" involves a sheet of A4 on the table beside my patio doors and a steady handheld shot! I've had to wait until now to have nature's assistance with the lighting but now that spring is...

    Look forward to seeing your strap with the contrast stitching. After being without my OP for a week... it's firmly back on my wrist and I really am now reassessing the need for some of the other...

    Some great shots there Simon - as you say, the OP holds its head up amongst good company! It has presented me with similar thoughts as to the rest of my collection. To echo your comments regarding...

    By the powers of TZ... we are already one step ahead of you Lorne... #130 is in the air, on its way from NI to Wales. These watches were built to travel, it would have been rude not to :eagerness:

    Well, mine came on the strap (Hirsch). Getting that off was easy - with a Bergeon small tipped springbar tool. Getting the springbars back in for fitting the bracelet was NOT easy - because the bars...

    Mobile phone photos have a habit of making my watches look bigger than they are. Your pic is more like reality to me.

    As said above though... get different spring bars if you want to fit this at home. I had a set of 22mm bars that came with a 22m NATO from watch gecko (I think!). They fitted in like a dream. Lorne's...

    Some nasty quality phone pics at this late hour in terrible light!!.... but you'll get my point. Look how well this sits on my wrist. ZERO gap.

    One thing I've noticed... if you have smaller wrists, the bracelet is absolutely brilliant. I'll take some pics to explain - but the links are so supple that they sit in tight against your wrist....

    Yeah... That phrase is going to be like that for some time until the old site closes down

    Try searching for the new company name, 'marine chronometer company' and you'll find it all over page 1.
